About Dr. William Purser

From his dedication to Logan and assistance in building the Purser Center named in his honor to his support and advocacy of the chiropractic profession, Dr. Purser believes in giving back to the institution that helped him enjoy 25 successful years of practice.

“I didn’t know what I wanted to do until I went to a chiropractor,” Dr. Purser recalled. “I had a G.I. bill coming so I quit my job and ended up going to Logan. After that, I started a practice in Virginia where I stayed for 25 years.” Even though Dr. Purser left his practice to enter real estate, he will always feel his true calling was to be a chiropractor. “It’s the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done in my life,” he said. “Though I never did get back to practicing, I never got way from my love of chiropractic and Logan.”
